Apple is set to introduce the 8GB iPhone 5c in India.
The 8GB variant was officially unveiled back in March, and was initially available in UK, France, Germany, Australia, and China. Recently, the company launched it in additional countries, including Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Czech Republic, Ireland, Portugal, Austria, Spain,
Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, and Norway.
Now, Apple is set to add to this list, with India amongst thecountries that is slated to get the cheapest current-generation iPhone.
The iPhone 5c was launched in India carrying a price tag of Rs. 41,900 for the 16GB model. 8GB variant is cheaper than the 16GB iPhone 5c by EUR 50 (Rs. 4,100 approximately), so a sub-Rs. 35,000 price tag for the 8GB iPhone 5c is likely.
While the 8GB iPhone 5c is not without its limitations aswe've noted earlier , the strategy of offering previous generations iPhone models at lower price points has worked well for Apple India in the recent past, so it's likely thagetales of the first 'colourful' iPhone will also get a push thanks to the price.
During the last earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook highlighted the growth in the India market, which industry insiders have attributed to the various cash backs and exchange offers that Apple has launched in the country.
